Subject: 10 REASONS WHY I GIVE
“When I was in the Army I learned that when
the commander gave an order, there was a minimum requirement you
could do to satisfy the commander. But a good soldier would try
to understand the intentions of the commander and satisfy the intent
of the order. This is much like GIVING. We can give what is required
(tithes) or we can try to understand as Christ did, to give of
our ABUNDANCE. Christ was teaching us that it was through our giving
we express the Heart of God. These are the ten reasons I
- I GIVE as an INDICATION…as
an indication of good stewardship.

on the cross.
